Product description

Product Description

Of the composers who inaugurated the renaissance of Italian instrumental music in the late nineteenth century, Luigi Mancinelli is probably the least well-known. Older than Martucci, Respighi and Casella, he was in the vanguard of that creative resurgence. As a conductor he was admired by Wagner and Verdi, and as a composer he wrote music of sophistication and style, such as the colourful and touching Scene veneziane (Scenes of Venice). The music for Cleopatra shows why, in its increased complexity, Mancinelli was admired for his orchestral mastery. Francesco La Vecchia was appointed Artistic Director and Resident Conductor of the Orchestra Sinfonica di Roma in 2002. The orchestra has rapidly achieved success in Europe under his leadership.

Format: Audio CD
This fascinating disc is also very confusing. If you read the notes in the booklet the 2 suites for theater productions composed for a certain Pietro Cossa - Messaline form 1876 and Cleopatra from 1877 - are the composer's best works. And if one had to choose between those two Cleopatra would be the winner. The music from Cleopatra seems to be in 6 movements and the booklet says `it's a kind of a tone poem, given the coherent whole they form and the intensity and expressiveness with which they tell the story of Cleopatra.' So why would you give the listening public only 2 of this 6 movements? (Only the Overture and the third nr. `Battaglai di Azio' are included on this disc). That kills the musical narrative (if it's a tone poem) isn't it? Was there a lack of rehearsal time, production time, are the other 4 movements lost or what? A Cd can easily hold 80 minutes and this disc halts at 58....
Mancinelli was one of the first of a line of composers, which included Sgambati, Martucci and Faccio who were determined to break away from opera's dominance in Italian musical life so recordings of these works are of real importance and I don't understand why Naxos presents it like this. Let's hope there'll be a second disc with the other 4 movements! The music is very very listenable and very well performed by La Vecchia and his band. Please consider they recorded much Casella and will certainly explore more Italian symphonists, but this disc, it's a confusing presentation.
